Volunteering at the Garden


Garden Docents

Several volunteers came forward in 1996 to be trained as garden  docents, and they have become a strong corps to lead public tours  through the Botanical Garden. Reservations for free 30- to 60-minute  tours can be made for groups, e.g., schools, civic groups, horticultural  clubs, and seniors associations. These tours teach botany and some  of the interesting lore surrounding particular specimens in the  collection, starting at The Nest. MEMBG welcomes volunteers eager  to be trained as Docents.

Volunteer Gardeners

MEMBG encourages adults with an interest in plant cultivation  to become Volunteer Gardeners. This program, comprised of enthusiastic  individuals from the local UCLA community and surrounding area,  devote at least four hours per week helping to maintain the quality  of the collection, and in the process learn many useful aspects  of horticulture and botany.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer gardener, please contact us at the Garden Office; Telephone:(310)825-1260.
